11 Video Games That Will Become Movies

The Angry Birds Movie 2

The Angry Birds Movie 2 is a highly anticipated movie with the first Angry Birds Movie being one of the most successful movies based on video games ever made with a box office of $353 million and a budget just of $73 million which is also very exceptional considering that the Angry Birds game has a limited story and also none of the characters in the video game ever spoke.

Assassin’s Creed 2

Assassins Creed 2 is a no-brainer after the success of the first Assassin Creed movie which made a double profit with a budget of $125 million and a box office of $240.9 million which is not bad at all. The second movie will be a sequel to its predecessor which was released in 2016. It is likely that Ubisoft will continue to pump out many more Assassins Creed movies in the future as it does with the video games if the second movie shows that the first Assassins Creed movie wasn’t just a one hit wonder.
